Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, sumac, garlic, salt and pepper; set aside. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.)

Place pitas on rimmed baking sheet; bake in 425ºF (220ºC) oven until golden and crispy, about 8 minutes. Let cool; tear into bite-size pieces.

Cut cucumber into 1-inch (2.5 cm) chunks; place in large bowl. Add onions, chickpeas, corn, parsley and mint; pour dressing over top and toss to combine. Add pita pieces and romaine; toss again.
